As a record number of voters cast their ballots by mail this year, more than half of the states are relying on signatures to verify voters’ identities. Nearly 30 counties in at least eight states use automatic signature verification software to help — yes, software. And while humans aren’t always that great, software makes mistakes too, and some experts worry it could even contribute to voter disenfranchisement. Host Sabri Ben-Achour speaks with Kyle Wiggers, who reports on artificial intelligence for VentureBeat.
